Polyamide 6/6 - Nylon 6/6 - PA 6/6 40% Glass Bead Filled

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Increased rigidity without the distortion problems associated with glass fibre reinforcement. High compressive strength compared with unmodified grades of Nylon 6/6.

Disadvantages

Reduced notched impact strength compared with unmodified polyamide 6/6. No improvement in HDT.
